Too many idiotic laws and too much drama with the AR platform.
I spent my time working on my Mini's.
The 14 got an Accuracy Systems barrel strut with an adjustable gas block, shock buffer, heavier duty guide spring. Rang 300 yard steel with a red dot last month, so it's doing what I wanted it to do.
It's in the process of getting a trigger job done by A.S., should have it back next week.

Just replaced the 30's .085" gas bushing with a .070" so my brass doesn't end up in Nevada.

RR- better get working on that new AR and give those AKs a rest.......

Tim- nice I like the mini-14s but the AR is better for me.


Still gotta break down and get the AR10 sighted in with the can. Going to get some Go, NO-GO gauges for the 300BO upper I am going to make hopefully soon.

The AR is a very respectable platform, I lobbed more than a few rounds at little green pop-ups during my national guard tenure.
It just bothers me that you either have to neuter it to keep the nice features, or turn it into a weird feeling hybrid.

I wouldn't kick one out of my safe for eating full metal jackets.

Or just don't comply with the bullshit, at all. Always an option.

Modulo the felony if you're actually caught with an unregistered AW, do ranges check the paperwork on RAWs?

There are rules you can bend and get away with it, but you don't want to lose your gun rights for life by getting caught for a felony.
Well, I can't speak for you, but I will speak for me.

What is the point of owning a gun you can never take out, assemble, or practice with?

I got no bites from Armscraigslist on the AR I configured for sale at $1100, so I reconfigured it for personal use on my GWACS lower, with YHM HK-shrouded front sight clamped to, Troy fixed rear sight, and PA micro dot.

These dots are all too small and I want a Holosun 65/2 MOA circle dot or ACSS. The HS530G seems ideal but I'm broke. The 20mm tubes aren't great for me.

I put a click-adjustable C-more (6 MOA dot?) on my lightweight AR in place of a Primary Arms micro dot (2 MOA dot?).

You can't beat C-more dot quality and now I've got a bigger dot with less clutter. And it's on in 3 clicks without looking, no need to remember which way to rotate the PA knob or look at it.

I found some brand new Forster .223 gauges and tried them on two 5.56 rifles I had assembled years ago.

In the newer barrel, only one magazine of ammo through it, the GO gauge chambered, and the NO GO gauge chambered. The instructions say it still might be acceptable headspace. But it's a .223 gauge in a 5.56 chamber so I think it's more likely to close on that NO GO gauge anyway.

Built well more like slapped this together, before the pandemic started. AR 9mm CMMG MK9 lower that takes colt mags and Fox Trot Mike AR-9 upper. Thorsden Gen1 Stock, buffer tube cover, and cheek piece. Magpul BUIS and M-LOK covers. Was going for that black and OD green look. I had to modify the upper a bit to reliably hold ASC mags. Can't wait to get me a 32rd mags when we get our freedom!

AT3 Red dot and magnifier

Only taken to the range once and it shot flawlessly at the indoor range with the flip up sites. Gotta take it out and zero the red dot. I feel for my arm I would feel more comfortable with a longer stock, so I might add some spacers to the butt pad. It's already as long as the M16 style buttstock but that weird grip makes it feel well wierd.

I didn't like that small red dot so I put on a click switch C-More, 6 MOA or 8 MOA dot, I can't really tell. I just co-witnessed it with the irons and it was good to go.


youtu.be/vx8z_32OQXc

Hell yeah, so much better than the itty bitty dot. Video shows how slow it is to get the first shot off from a slung rifle, starting hands-off. My forehand grip is different each time, and not my "proper" grip I use when starting hands-on. Slower than drawing a holstered pistol.

Video also includes some FrankenFAL. I haven't shot it in forever and wasn't used to the recoil. And my proper AR grip puts my thumb in the way of the low iron sights, so it requires its own special grip. I also can't focus on the front sight now so I guess I should look into an optic, either a dot or move my 3 gun LPVO to it. But I'm a semi-purist and can't stand to do that to even a FrankenFAL.
